Rice Pilaf (adaptable)

2 & 1/2 c. organic broth (vegetable or chicken)*
1 c. rice blend (brown/texmati/wild/wheat berry etc)
1/4 c. petite green peas (frozen)
1/4 c. baby carrots, thinly sliced
3 green onions, chopped (or one very small white onion)

Optional: 1/2 c. red or brown lentils

Combine all ingredients in 2.5 qt saucepan. Bring to boil over medium high heat. Cover; reduce heat to medium low and simmer 35-45 minutes until all liquid is absorbed.

Note: Do not cook over too high a heat, or rice will still be crunchy when all the liquid is gone.

*Or use 2 & 1/2 c. water and add 1 tsp. good soup base/bouillon blend when water comes to a boil.

Adapt broth & vegetables to compliment main dish.
